Birthstone Mani

Greetings all!

I recently celebrated my birthday, and as a present to myself I bought a few polishes from Lynnderella's Talismans and Birthstones Collection. Of course I had to get the polish for my birthstone, which is the yellow-green peridot. Today I have for you my birthstone mani, using Lynnderella’s Peridot Power and Zoya’s Tangy.

The photos below are three coats of Tangy topped with one coat of SV, and 2 coats of Peridot Power over white and topped with two coats of SV to even it out a bit.

Tangy is a yellowish-green metallic duochrome that flashes orange, and you can see a little of the color shift on my middle nail in the second photo. Peridot Power is a clear base packed (and I mean PACKED) with different shades of green glitter and microglitter, plus some gold-toned and holographic glitter. This is the first Lynn I have ever worn, and I was not disappointed. I am also happy with how my mani is holding up; while I've had major chipping issues with glitterbombs in the past, the only chip I have in PP is after four days and it's a spot where everything chips because of the curve of my nail.

I have to admit, it was really hard to get a picture that comes anywhere close to being color accurate for either polish. I was trying for a few days to get photos I thought were good enough. Direct sunlight shows both the colors and the holo glitters the best.

Tangy is available on the Zoya website, and Peridot Power, along with other shades from the Talismans and Birthstones Collection, is available for purchase in Lynnderella's store.  Check out the collection, there are some stunners.
